"The Lost Art of Twilight" may be described as conceptual, mostly instrumental album and is ontological sequel of firstborn "...Against Human Race". However, the songs are conceptual fragments of a story, telling a tale of destruction and reinvention of the world we knew.
Imaginary and energy from George Sterling's nightmarish poetry or celestial fiction of Howard P. Lovecraft, Thomas Ligotti and Clark Ashton Smith, endless “pencil and paper” RPG wanderings (like Changeling: The Dreaming and Warhammer) with ritualistic magical drops on blotter canvases, preceded the openings of some portals.
At the end of it all, it is blind men's kaleidoscopic journey through various musical forms, a living mutant swarming aural spaces at the dawn of XXI century... and you can hear its heartbeat, next to you now.
